Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC

1 Answer

Windows XP freezes with any network type enabled

I have had this problem on my laptop. It is a fresh copy of Windows XP w/ sp2. I loaded no drivers onto it, installed nothing but zone alarm suite. I plug in the Ethernet to do windows update. SP3 being the first one. Installed it, rebooted. Now whenever I plug in an ethernet, or turn on wireless (the on off powersaver switch on the side) my computer locks up. As in no program will open. ctl+alt+delete. Nothing. Mouse moves, thats about it.

This is the second time I have reinstalled. Last time same thing, but I used the ethernet to DL all the drivers from Toshiba, and installed them, same outcome. I talked to a friend and he said to boot up in safe mode and look at the error log. I will do that in a second. Just wanted to get this posted then start working again.

I am very computer literate. So dont feel like you need to dumb down things to much.

Thanks guys!

My computer Desktop is not running.



Hi hichris_4u

You should be able to replace the Explorer.exe. Type in the command prompt expand C:\I386\explorer.ex_ %systemroot%\explorer.exe This will expand a new copy to the windows directory.

You should also download a new version of SP2 and reinstall it. You also could download a clean copy of SP2 Click the Download button. The file is 266MB. Create a folder on the C:\ root called SP2 and download it there. Create another folder called SP2 files now at a command prompt type C:\SP2\WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU.exe /x it’ll ask you to specify an directory so point it to the SP2 Files folder and let it extract there. Now type in the command prompt expand C:\SP2 Files\I386\explorer.ex_ %systemroot%\explorer.exe to expand a new copy to the windows directory.

If you get an error on destination, try expand C:\SP2 Files\I386\explorer.ex_ c:\windows\explorer.exe

If you expanding fron the I386 from the C:\ root try expand C:\I386\explorer.ex_ c:\windows\explorer.exe

If all fails, try and download SP2 onto another machine and then burn it to a CD for install.

Good Luck,

Mark
